Daily Photo 4.1.11 (Walking Bridge at Night)

I decided I need to take advantage of the really cool camera apps on my EVO phone.  Sometimes it feels like I am not taking a “real” photo, because it’s with my phone, but the effects I can get are just amazing, and it takes my creativeness in a whole new direction.  Tonight we were walking on the bridge over Town Lake (Lady Bird Lake), and I thought I would use different apps to photograph the empty bridge.  These are my 2 favorites.

Daily Photo 2.3.11 (Frozen Fountain)

I thought I would take advantage of the freezing weather and get some photos of frozen fountains.  I really like this fountain, with the great metal sculpture around it.  This is located on Auditorium Shores, at S. 1st and Riverside Dr., just on the south side of the river (Lady Bird Lake).  Did I mention this is in Austin, TEXAS!!

My Daily Photo- Top 10…HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Well, I started my Daily Photo Blog at the beginning of 2010, hoping that I learn more about photography, learn my camera and I think I have done that.  I do notice an improvement from the beginning of the year, and now when I want to take a specific photograph, technically- I kinda know what I am doing! 🙂

I wish all of you a very Happy New Year!  I hope you all set goals and reach them (even surpass them!).  I set some goals each year and I try really hard to accomplish them.  Sometimes I feel that just by having some of my goals on my blog, or on Facebook, it helps me, because I feel like “I told the world, so now I have to do it!”

Here are my top 10, as chosen by friends, family, comments, views & myself:

Daily Photo 9.11.10 (Rain Drops-Black & White)

I did not get a chance to photograph today (It was a painting day), so I thought I would work on a photo from a few days ago.  I was looking for something that I could do black & white (I love that about digital!) Here’s some of the rain drops on my porch from the big “flooding” rain we had a few days ago!
